Margot A. Johnson Post-Doctural Fellowship

The Margot A. Johnson Post-Doctoral Fellowship was established in 2016 by the II-VI Foundation to honor their recently deceased co-founder and dedicated supporter.  Margot delighted in talking with students supported by the Foundation and watching their growth and continuing education. This fellowship was developed to add another level to the educational support offered through the II-VI Foundation. The Margot A. Johnson Post-Doctoral Fellowship supports a post-doctoral student performing research deemed valuable by the II-VI Foundation technical advisers and conducted at a University or College under the direction of a Principal Investigator.

The first recipient of this fellowship is Chunkun Jiao at Purdue University. Purdue University will receive a gift covering the twelve month period from July 1, 2016 until June 30, 2017 to support post-doctoral research and development on "Deposited Gate Oxides for Next-Generation SiC Power MOSFET's" to be performed by the University under the direction of Principal Investigator Professor Dallas Morisette.
